SEVILLE, Spain—For a change, Gilas Pilipinas got off to a rip-roaring start and played with complete command in the first quarter of its game against world powerhouse Argentina.

The Filipinos hit their outside shots and were relentless underneath as they enjoyed leads of as many as 10, 12-2, before settling for a 25-22 count going into the second period.
